Going to California! WRWG at 2017 AJFO Conference

WRWG Leadership - Beatrice Codianni, Jackie Lucibello, Amy Smoyer, Sandra Weins, and Shannon Clarkson - are all attending the biannual conference of the Association of Justice-Involved Females and Organizations.  This year's conference will be held in Santa Clara, CA, December 11-13, 2017. For more information about the conference, visit: https://www.ajfo.org/2017-conference

Sandra and Shannon will present a poster about the Prison and Reentry Ministries at the First Congregational Church of Guilford.

Beatrice, Jackie & Amy will be presenting on the work of WRWG and SWAN, with a focus on sharing experiences about the leadership formerly incarcerated women in these initiatives.  Their panel is entitled, Nothing About Us Without Us. (Click on title for full abstract.)

Financial support is needed to cover the travel expenses of Beatrice and Jackie. Both of these women are volunteers who donate their time and expertise to WRWG and SWAN. It is critical that they participate in the dissemination of this work.  The Social Work Association for Graduate Students (SWAG) at Quinnipiac University has created a GoFundMe site to raise funds for these expenses. Please contribute whatever you can afford - no donation is too big or too small.

Your support is greatly appreciated!
